How to Reduce Body Swelling ?

Punarnava mandur is one of the best classical Ayurvedic herbal remedy to reduce body swelling. It is purely a natural product without causing any side effects and is being used Ayurveda physicians worldwide since ages. This herbal remedy reduces body swelling without causing any side effects. 

Causes of Body Swelling

Weak Heart ( Congestive heart failure, Pump failure, Cardiomyopathies)
Weak Kidneys ( Renal Failure, Nephrotic syndrome and many others)
Weak Liver ( Liver failure, hepatitis, jaundice, liver cirrhosis)
Swelling around joints – Due to arthritis of any type.

Generalized swelling is also known as Anasarca in medical terminology. It is also referred to as edema. Edema is a medical condition characterized by excessive accumulation of fluid within the body’s tissues. The fluid build up rapidly increases the weight of the person.

The swelling can be all over the body, under the skin, in the feet or ankles, under eyes or all over the body.
The swelling on the body may be pitting or non-pitting edema. Pitting edema is a type of swelling that leaves an indentation in the skin when the swollen area is pushed on for five seconds and then quickly removed. Non-pitting edema, on the other hand, does not leave a pit.

A certain amount of slight body swelling is considered normal during warmer months. This is particularly true for people who walk or stand a lot throughout the day. In addition, a pregnant woman may experience a slight amount of swelling from the stress of carrying a child. In both cases, there is generally no cause for concern.

It is also possible for swelling in the body to be caused by severe illness, particularly when the swelling is generalized. A person experiencing massive swelling should seek medical attention immediately, as it can indicate a serious progressive or chronic illness.

Some illnesses that can cause swelling include heart failure, chronic kidney disease, acute glomerulonephritis, nephritic syndrome, thyroid disease, and liver failure resulting from cirrhosis. Burns, both from fire and from the sun, can also cause swelling. Malnutrition, excessive salt intake, and too little albumin in the blood are other possible causes.

Certain drugs can also cause swelling in body. Common drugs that can lead to swelling include antihypertensives, androgenic steroids, anabolic steroids, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and calcium channel blockers. Carticosteroids can also cause swelling, as they encourage retention of sodium.

How to reduce Swelling in the body

Usually diuretics are given to reduce the swelling in the body. There are quick results but sometimes there are side effects causing concern regarding their use. There are some herbal remedies available today which are useful in all types of body swelling.
